Why Horror Matters
Horror is one of the most popular and influential genres in entertainment, and has a long and rich history in gaming, movies, and TV. Horror can evoke a range of emotions, from fear and dread to excitement and thrill, and can challenge and inspire audiences with its themes, stories, and aesthetics. Horror can also reflect and comment on the social and cultural issues of the times, and offer a cathartic and creative outlet for both creators and consumers.
IGN’s Festival of Fear aims to celebrate the diversity and quality of horror in entertainment, and to showcase the best of the genre to its fans and newcomers alike. The festival will also feature some fun and interactive elements, such as quizzes, polls, trivia, and more, to engage and entertain the audience.
IGN invites everyone to join the Festival of Fear, and to enjoy the screams, mayhem, and blood. Lots of blood.
